In 2019, it was surpassed by "Grey's Anatomy" as the longest-running medical drama on American television with 332 episodes and counting. However, "Grey's Anatomy" showrunner Krista Vernoff once shared that "ER" was actually one of the shows that inspired her to write her hit show.

Although it hasn't been on TV for over a decade now, "ER" is still well-loved by viewers. In fact, Clooney's wife Amal recently started watching it. He admitted that his wife isn't too pleased with his bad-boy character, and it's getting him into trouble.
